The Lacerate 2.0 Core is the combination of two of the most successful cores of all time for Global. The top portion is that of the Honey Badger, while the bottom portion is that of the Badger. By merging these two amazing cores into one and adding a dense flip block, we have created an engine that will change directions unbelievably sharp. When combined with the super clean cover, the Lacerate 2.0 core will absolutely tear the back part of the lanes to pieces!

S70™ Pearl Reactive Coverstock

The venerable S70 Cover, in its pearl form, will ignore the front part of the lane and unleash it’s full power on the backend. By offering it in a pearl version we have ensured that this ball will not hook early. This cover has been purposely engineered to help you combat dry heads and tighter backends. Feel free to move in and let this ball do its thing on medium conditions.

I really like the Wolverine and have 9 games with the ball. Whatever I replace this ball with hopefully will produce similar results.

Great League and Tournament Ball
This ball is so versatile for your average bowler or tournament player. The shape is so controllable and smooth it makes it that much easier for your average league bowler, to predict what the balls motion is going to do next. It is a step down from the Altered Reality.
The cover stock on the ball is eye catching with the bright blue sheen.
Highly recommend this ball.

WOW.. The Wolverine has a serious return on the investment so far. Off the pattern, it looks like a little bowling gnome is standing 4 feet before the rack and the ball goes HARD and STRONG thru the pins. Usually 1 inch pin drillings for me read early, as designed and get super smooth. Well, I was quite surprised by the strong reaction the ball had in the back end. It was not over / under at all during the course of practice and then league. Had 2 other lefties on the pair with me and I just adjusted to the left of where they were playing, to stay clean and still keep striking without losing any carry. So IMPRESSED by the ball, several bowlers ordered and bought Wolverines that night. My one teammate went and drove over 1 1/2 hours to a pro shop that had one in stock the very next day. The Wolverine to me reminds me of the Hyroad Pearl I had a few years ago with a just a tick longer skid, but a stronger overall reaction in the back end. The Wolverine is NOT a SHEEP... Its a KILLER of racks!!!

The Global Wolverine is a great looking Pearl ball that reads the lane very well. Global shows this to be a flip type ball but for me it has a very nice long motion. I am not sure if it is because of where I have tried the ball to this point but I am seeing more of a control ball than a flip ball. The Wolverine definitely fits into the category for medium conditions and may end up being my benchmark polished ball much like the Ordinance C4 can be a benchmark dull ball. I like using Symmetric balls for a benchmark reaction. The Wolverine fits between my Burner Pearl and Altered Reality in hook potential. It is an easy move to go to the Wolverine when the Altered Reality is too strong. The Wolverine is priced right and as more people see it go down the lane or try it at a ball demo sales should pick up.

The Wolverine reads the lane nicely and drives hard through the pins.
There is very little deflection when the ball enters the pocket.
This ball should work well for many different styles of bowlers.

So clean & smooth on the backend compared to the Altered Reality! Very good step down from the altered in tournaments later in the block or later in the game during leagues. The blue is so bright I love it! A absolute must in your bag! Get it at your local proshop now!
